Welcome to my blog!
My name is Karen George, formerly Karen Blodgett. I was born in Michigan, and spent most of my life growing up in Sterling Heights. I attended Sterling Heights High School and graduated in June of 1993.
Shortly after graduating high school, and while studying electrical engineering at Oakland University (Rochester Hills, MI)- I met my future husband Michael while working at an Italian restaurant near my home. It took him seven years, but we eventually married on May 19, 2001.
We moved to Scottsdale, Arizona and lived together in bliss (no, really!) for just about four perfect years. However, when I was 29 years old, the cancerous tumor in my breast was misdiagnosed as a cyst. My official breast cancer diagnosis was delayed for one full year while the cancer spread through my body.
This is my personal account with breast cancer. No juicy details will be omitted, I promise.
